San Mateo county officials are trying to prevent the opening of a Chick-Fil-A location in Redwood City, California, claiming that the fried chicken franchise is hostile to the LGBT community.
David Canepa, a San Mateo county supervisor, is leading the effort to drive the franchise away from the San Francisco suburb. He claims that “when people think of the Chick-fil-A logo — what they think of is anti-LGBTQ.”
Chick-Fil-A’s ownership has become the target of controversy for their Christian views in support of traditional marriage. Dan Cathy, the CEO of the company, has supported socially conservative organizations such as the Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council, in addition to speaking openly about his Christian religion.
Canepa went on to openly profess his opposition to Chick-Fil-A opening in Redwood City, taking it upon himself to try and deny their approval to build a new location on a political basis alone. “What we are trying to do is to make sure Chick-fil-A — if they want to do business here — that there is a lot of pressure here and that they should do the right thing and withdraw their application.”
The restaurant chain doesn’t require zoning permission to utilize their desired location(a former McDonald’s), but county commissioners wish to see them forced out through a community backlash.
Another San Mateo county bureaucrat, Craig Weisner, hypocritically expressed a desire for the local government to allow businesses to operate, while hoping that the “community” would tank the chicken company’s push to open a location in Redwood City. Weisner chairs the county’s LGBTQ Commission.
“I don’t think that we should necessarily be regulating what businesses can open in Redwood City, but I do think that as a community, we can stand up and say we don’t want this particular business which has taken a very open stand against LGBTQ people and spent millions of dollars against us at the heart of our county.”
The fried chicken restaurant chain became a target of liberal protests in 2014, but weathered the animosity to become one of the most popular fast food restaurants in America today.
As the Global Economy Craters, Bill Gates Buys New Oceanfront Mansion for $43 Million
Gates lives the high life while the rest of us suffer.
Technocratic oligarch Bill Gates is living high on the hog while the global economy crashes, picking up another mansion at the height of the coronavirus pandemic to add to his collection.
Gates purchased a $43 million beach home in Del Mar, Calif. with his wife Melinda last week. He bought the palatial estate from Madeleine Pickens, the widow of deceased oil baron T. Boone Pickens, which includes six bedrooms and four bathrooms in a lavish 5,800-square-foot home.
Architect Ken Ronchetti designed the home in 1999, and it is supposedly considered “one of the most prominent coastal contemporary beach homes on the West Coast.”
“Wide windows throughout the living spaces open to the back patio, offering a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The large patio also provides awe-inspiring vistas of the Pacific Ocean,” Realtor.com wrote in their description of the property.
“Rich wood ceilings throughout the home evoke the feeling of being on an island, and the gorgeous pool beckons, should the owners desire to take a break from the salty ocean water,” they added.
Gates newest beach home accompanies his primary compound in Medina, Wash., a garish horse property in Rancho Santa Fee, Calif., and a massive plot of land in Wellington, Fla., which is considered the equestrian capital of the state.
Gates isn’t the only oligarch flaunting his extreme wealth during the greatest economic calamity since the Great Depression. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is also piling up many more billions due to human suffering.
Reports have indicated that Bezos has added a stunning $24 billion to his personal wealth throughout the coronavirus pandemic:
While many businesses are suffering during the global coronavirus crisis, Jeff Bezos is flourishing. In the midst of the backlash Amazon is facing due to its alleged treatment of employees, Bezos’ wallet remains obscenely healthy. As of last week, his net worth has reportedly increased by five percent, or better put, by a staggering $23.6 billion.
Over the last months, Amazon has seen a rise in demand as its customer base continues to self-isolate. To cope with the surge of orders, it has already hired thousands of new employees and aims to hire an additional 175,000. It has also pledged to prioritize essential items such as sanitizers and baby formula.
However, the increase in workforce has been met with controversy. Amazon has been repeatedly accused of failing to protect its staff from Covid-19 by not providing enough face masks, not implementing regular temperature checks as promised, and refusing paid sick leave.
Amazon has fired employees who’ve publicly criticized the company for its coronavirus response; the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is currently looking into these claims. Last week, the New York Post reported that an Amazon warehouse employee had passed away from the virus.
“We are calling out because Amazon is putting its revenue above our safety,” Jaylen Camp, an Amazon worker told The Guardian. “We are not essential to them – they just think of us as numbers and quotas. They are not protecting our health.” This failure is leading to huge warehouse strikes after over 130 Amazon warehouses in the US have contracted the virus, leading to more than 30 confirmed cases.
Gates can now enjoy beautiful oceanfront scenery to help inspire his vaccine-pushing schemes worldwide, as he regurgitates Chinese propaganda.
